This Texas Style Chili recipe is from Relished Foods and is great in a pinch for dinner. It was quick and easy to throw together and well worth the minimal effort required! It was so hearty and really hit the spot.

Coming home from work and cooking a meal is one of the hardest parts of my day. When I get home, there is nothing I want to do less than cook. It’s not that I don’t like to cook. By now, it should be pretty obvious that I do! It’s just that I would much rather throw on some Pajama bottoms and a tank top, grab some ice cream and cuddle up in my bed watching Nashville on repeat.

What’s wrong with this picture?

Nothing in my opinion except for the ice cream. We all love our ice cream but that is not a proper meal.

Why do I struggle with this so much? Part of it is the grocery shopping. Another part of it is that I never know what it is I should be making during the week. I do most of the recipe development for this blog on the weekends and otherwise, I can’t be bothered to cook a proper meal for myself. The biggest part though, is that I am lazy and exhausted and I just can’t muster up the gumption to get in the kitchen Monday-Friday night.

I bet you think all food bloggers eat fabulous meals every single night.

Nope. If I’m being honest, most of the time I am eating a granola bar for dinner. That’s a little better than ice cream, am I right Ya’ll? (Remember Nashville? Yeah, I’m really binge watching it at the moment…) I always tell myself that this week is going to be the week that I meal plan, shop, prep and actually cook dinner. It never happens. I know it’s bad. I know I should be eating a proper meal of protein, healthy fat and vegetables instead of ice cream for dinner but sometimes I’m just too lazy.

Relished Foods is my answer to these weeknight meal dilemmas.

I cooked this chili on a Wednesday night and then I made the Roasted Fish Tacos you see above the very next night. Next on my list is their Potato and Leak Rosti.

What’s so great about a service like the one Relished Foods offers?

All you have to do is cook. You don’t have to meal plan and you don’t have to go shopping for ingredients.

You also won’t have to run back to the store for an ingredient you forgot because you are a space cadet and your head is in the clouds most of the time. Oh, that’s just me?

How does it work?

You log on to the website and pick your meals for the week. Each meal is clearly labeled if they are vegetarian or gluten free. They send you a package that is packaged well with ice bags so nothing spoils. All of the ingredients are labeled properly and measured out for you already. You may have to do some chopping or dicing though!

They send the recipe along with easy to follow step by step photos! All you need to have in your pantry is olive oil, salt and pepper. It really couldn’t be easier. It is just $9.95/serving which is pretty reasonable.

Texas Style Chili

This chili recipe is so hearty filled with huge chunks of juicy steak and beans.

Yield: 2

Prep Time: 15 min

Cook Time: 15 min

Total Time: 30 min


12 Oz Sirloin Beef
1 Onion
2 Garlic Cloves
1 Poblano Pepper
4 Oz Pinto and Black Beans 4 Oz Diced Tomatoes
4 Tbls Chili Spice Mix
2 Biscuits
2 Green Onions
3 Oz Shredded Cheese
3 Oz Chicken Stock
olive oil


Small dice the onion, poblano pepper and garlic, then reserve for next step.

Thinly slice green onions on a bias (angle) to use as garnish later.

Cut the steak into one inch cubes.

Preheat a large sauce pan on high head. Add 2 tbsp oil and then heat until almost smoking. Season beef cubes with a pinch of salt and pepper then add to the pot.

Move meat around so that it is browning evenly. Do not try to use too small of a pot or the beef won’t have room to cook and will steam out all of the juices. Once browned, reduce heat to medium high.

Once meat has browned, add spices and cook for a minute or so.

Next, add garlic, onions and poblano pepper.

Once the garlic and onion begins to sweat, add diced tomatoes and chicken stock. Bring to a simmer and slowly allow the ingredients to cook for approximately 10-15 minutes.

Once ingredients have cooked for approximately 10 minutes, add the beans.

Season with salt and pepper to taste and then allow to simmer an additional 10 minutes.

Place finished chili into a bowl. Top with green onion and cheese then dunk biscuit into the chili

    Looks delicious! And as a food blogger – wasn’t it nice to not have to ‘think’ about what recipe to make for a change?

    • Samantha Seeley replied on — May 27th, 2014 at 12:34 pm

      I think that might have been the best part. Just mindlessly following instructions and having delicious results was REALLY nice for a change.

    I actually do eat wonderful meals every night…oh, except the part where they’re all cold because god forbid I serve anything without taking pictures first! Sign me up for the chili and the tacos – yum!

    • Samantha Seeley replied on — May 27th, 2014 at 12:34 pm

      I wish I was like that! I tend not to cook unless it is for the blog and most of that is done on the weekend when I have my boyfriend over to feed. If I’m cooking just for myself, it normally doesn’t happen. I’m trying to get better at it though! 🙂

    I hate that rush to eat and grabbing something like a granola bar! I must prefer meals like this one. 🙂

    I like the fact that everything is in one package and true that it prevents you from forgetting to pick up something at the store. Sounds like a helpful service for busy folk. Those fish tacos look fab!

    I struggle with this daily. All I want to do is just cuddle and eat chocolate, and not once have to think of what to cook for dinner. But I can’t. I have children which need to be fed wholesome meals. I love the idea of not having to think. Just cook. This chili looks so hearty! I’m all for having a meal at the table in 30 minutes.

    • Samantha Seeley replied on — May 27th, 2014 at 1:00 pm

      It’s good to hear that its not just me! I know if I had kids to worry about, I’d be cooking all the time and I’d try to be super organized. Well maybe that is just wishful thinking 😉 For now, the struggle between something good to eat and ice cream/PJ’s continues… 🙂

    I have never had chili with hunks of meat in it (I am an East Coast gal). I kinda love it!!

    • Samantha Seeley replied on — May 27th, 2014 at 4:09 pm

      Me either! East coast FTW! For me it is usually beans or ground beef but this was really great.

    Sounds like a very helpful service! I must admit I struggle with getting dinner on the table on time and hot! I’m usually trying to take one last pic!

    Lana @ Never Enough Thyme — May 27, 2014 at 7:31 pm

    I think this would be great for weeks when I know I have a busy schedule and won’t want to cook! What a great idea.

    Lauren Kelly — May 27, 2014 at 8:08 pm

    This sounds fantastic, especially with three busy kids! And the chili looks delicious 🙂

    I tried out Relished too- great meals and SO simple!

    I’m totally with you on not wanting to cook dinner when I get home. I really need to start planning and cooking on sundays…we’ll see if i ever get it together though. I should try a meal plan service like this though. Also, ice cream is totally appropriate for dinner 😉

    This is so my life! Except I have a husband to feed, so there is the guilt there to cook dinner for him, so generally I do get off my butt after the pi’s and tank top have been put on and I start dinner. We don’t have Relished foods but Plated and I’ve been meaning to try it forever (especially since I have 4 free meals). After reading this I think I need to.

    Kirsten/ComfortablyDomestic — May 28, 2014 at 5:58 pm

    I’d like to say that I’m never too tired or lazy to cook dinner, but I’d be lying. Relished sounds like a great idea for those nights when I just can’t think.

    Kellie @ The Suburban Soapbox — May 28, 2014 at 8:50 pm

    I love nights when I don’t have to think about dinner but still have fresh ingredients and a fabulous meal to eat. I recently tried Plated and loved the foolproof meals they provided!

    As much as I think it’s great that these types of companies are getting people cooking during the week and eating balanced meals, I worry about the packaging and sourcing of ingredients.

    Do you ever batch-cook?? It would be good to cook a bunch of stuff on the weekends when you’re already doing that and then having meals throughout the week (or throwing things into the freezer as you cook for meals later)

    It feels deceitful that a food blogger isn’t practicing what they preach in terms of making good food. Maybe that’s why I enjoy paleo bloggers so much, because they are in tune with their bodies and fueling them properly, therefore they are constantly cooking and tweaking recipes and the foods they eat.
